Inside the changing face of Angelina Jolie as expert claims star maintains youthful look with ‘fillers and Botox’

FILM premieres are known for showing off bizarre fashion looks – and the Eternals were no different when Angelina Jolie was pictured with an unusual gold chin cuff.

The 46-year-old Hollywood megastar, who appeared with five of her six children, also showed off her tattoos in a puffy taupe dress at the star-studded event in Los Angeles.

Fans on social media disagreed over the flashy accessory – some branded it “bizarre” and others argued that “no one can do it … as elegantly as they do”.

“It can only be Angelina Jolie, right? I wonder how quickly Primark can get them on the shelves, ”one person tweeted.

The actress – the daughter of actors Jon Voight and Michaelle Bertrand – is known for her edgy style and changes her look regularly.

But her ever-youthful skin and stunning looks have raised eyebrows among fans over the years.

Some have questioned whether she underwent cosmetic surgery – a claim Ange denied prior to her double mastectomy and breast reconstruction in 2013.

“I haven’t had anything done and I don’t think I’ll do it … I don’t plan to do it myself,” she told the Daily Mail in 2010.

But experts have now questioned their claim.

Alice Henshaw, owner of Harley Street Injectables, told The Sun that there was no way she could have kept her wrinkle-free complexion without preventative treatment.

“We think her lips are natural, but I would definitely say she had botox, a skin tightening treatment, and maybe fillers,” says Alice.

“Angelina definitely had injections, but in a very subtle and flawless way like J.Lo.”

Here we look back at Angelina Jolie’s appearance on “The Changeling” over the years.

Child star

Angelina was five years old when she filmed a short one-day role in the film Lookin ‘To Get Out in 1982.

She played the cute Tosh Warner, who charmingly asked Alex Kovac – played by her father Jon – about his injuries.

It was her first film role, and if you didn’t know it was her, the young star in her old-fashioned dress and hat would be easily overlooked.

Said she was ‘too dark’ to make it through

It took Angelina a while to land her next film role – despite having a famous father and Hollywood connections.

In her teenage years, she modeled and starred in a number of music videos, including Meat Loaf’s 1993 cover of Rock & Roll Dreams Come Through.

“He was a pointy-eared genius and I was a runaway,” she recalled in a 2001 interview with Rolling Stone.

Angelina also appeared in a music video with Lenny Kravitz and several short films.

At the time, she had long hair and no tattoos and claimed she was told at the audition that she was “too dark” and couldn’t make it as an actress.

Pixie cut

In her first adult film, Angelina wore short cropped hair and heavily plucked eyebrows that had been arched into a high arch.

She was 20 years old when she starred in Hackers in 1995 – about a team of IT professionals who set out to prevent a deadly computer virus from being released.

Angelina kept her pixie look for other films and styled it in a number of ways, including a comb, before growing her hair back out.

Dreadlock to vampire look

The actress’s hair was medium length during a critically acclaimed performance on The Bone Collector in 1999.

A year later, at the Academy Awards, she was compared to a “vampire” while wearing long, jet black curls and pale makeup.

It was followed by an unusual fashion gaffe during the 2000 film Gone In Sixty Seconds when she wore blonde dreadlocks.

Ange continued to rock paler complexions and long dark hair during her short-lived marriage to Billy Bob Thornton, which ended in 2002.

Debate about breasts

Rumors began to circulate about the size of her breasts since Angelina’s first Lara Croft film in 2001.

It was alleged that she had a boob job playing the busty video game action hero who is known to have DD cups.

Angelina suppressed rumors that she was going under the knife and revealed that she used “a bit of padding” instead.

“Come on, I’m not that flat-chested at first. When I wear a tight t-shirt, I look a certain way, ”she told NY Rock Magazine in 2001.

Angelina said the production team had reduced Lara Croft’s bust size by one cup size, which made it easier to give the impression that her C cups were D cups.

However, not everyone agrees that it was pure upholstery – including Alice.

“I mean, come on, we’ve all seen Tomb Raider, it definitely looks like she’s had a breast augmentation,” she says.

Pale to bronze

In 2003, Angelina’s appearance had changed drastically again when she changed her pale makeup for a tanned look.

It was then that she started using some of her signature makeup tricks, including bare lips, no blush, and winged eyeliner.

Two years later, in 2005, she dated Brad Pitt after they met while filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith. There were rumors that her chemistry sparked the collapse of Pitt’s marriage to Jennifer Aniston.

Wrinkle-free glamor

Even though she was almost in her mid thirties, Angelina managed to keep her youthful appearance and present an old school Hollywood look.

Her looks were a far cry from her earlier short haired looks that she preferred as a young adult.

She appeared to be mimicking Audrey Hepburn’s hair from Breakfast At Tiffany’s while promoting her 2010 film Salt and regularly appeared with curly hair.

Make-up faux pas

Angelina was ridiculed in 2014 after an unfortunate makeup mishap that made it look like she had “flour on her face”.

The actress attended a screening in New York of the HBO drama The Normal Heart, produced by then-husband Brad.

Some people branded it online as an “epic disaster,” others suggested it might have been makeup that “wasn’t mixed in properly”.

One expert said Glamor was caused by HD finishing powder used to cover imperfections.

The powder contains light-reflecting particles that can appear white when there is a strong flash – such as a red carpet camera – known as “flashback”.

Beyond the bleaching

A year after Angelina and Brad split in 2016, the actress continued to dazzle the cameras with her sunken look.

In recent years, however, the actress seems to have returned to contouring and highlighting her model jaw – with hardly a crease in sight.

Eternal beauty

Regarding her smooth, glowing complexion on the red carpet for Eternals, Alice suggests that Ange had filler and a skin tightening treatment like Ultraformer or Profhilo.

“She has a very nice facial structure and a fuller look that she couldn’t get naturally,” she says.

“I think she got bulking because when you’re relatively low in body fat, your temples start to hollow out and lose volume as you get older.

“From the age of 25 you lose volume in the face, which you can prevent with a little filler in the middle of the check, the tear trough or on the temples.

“They are placed in areas that are not obvious to others, and if placed carefully, they should help a person look like they did in years past.”
